Kapil Dev 'amazed' at Indian Team, bouncing back quickly
CHANDIGARH: Legendary all-rounder Kapil Dev has lavished praise on the current Indian team’s ability to regroup rapidly following the retirements of several stars.
Kapil claimed, “There is no team in the world after losing their legendary players bounced back quicker than this Indian team. Normally, once the great players go in a bunch, a team needs at least five to seven years to come back. But, this Indian team has come back so quickly, I have never seen something like this. I am amazed.”
Dev also picked out a number of stars that had retired from the team in recent years, “Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid, Sourav Ganguly, VVS Laxman, Virender Sehwag, Harbhajan Singh, Zaheer Khan, Mahendra Singh Dhoni all of them have retired one by one.” Currently ranked number two in the ICC Test rankings, India have an opportunity to go on top if they clinch the forthcoming Test series against New Zealand by a margin of 2-0 or better.
